I'm a passionate fan of all combat sports, but especially MMA and boxing. I analyze striking, and I like to think that I'm pretty good at it. I'm currently training to compete as an amateur boxer, and hope to someday train with my long-distance mentor in all things boxing, Luis Monda.

Oh, I also do a podcast called Heavy Hands. Check it out.

A Fan Of...

  • Boxing Floyd Mayweather, Jomthong Chuwattana, Juan Manuel Marquez, Andre Ward, Mike McCallum, Bernard Hopkins, Joe Louis, Guillermo Rigondeaux
  • MMA Lyoto Machida, Demian Maia, Josh Barnett, Jose Aldo, James Toney
